About bonniesimone

My name is Bonnie Hamilton. I'm wife, mother of 7 children and 24 grandchildren. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have a testmony of its truthfulness and that it is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a great love for the Book of Mormon. I have read and studied it for many years. I know of its truthfulness. My blog, is to share that testimony with others. Most of my posts will be on how the Book of Mormon is an additional witness of Jesus Christ, a companion to the Bible. I invite open and respectful comments and questions on my blog. If I don't know the answer to question, I will research it until I can give a satisfactory answer. I also have two on-line businesses, a survival website, and a website selling children's room decor, If you need any of these types of items, I hope you visit my websites!
